  • Start a new game on any difficulty
  • After the intro sequence:
    • get out of the room,
    • get your vest,
    • go to the locked door
  • The guard that should kill a zombie and open the door for you is not there

There is also the same problem with training part: In initial sequence your fellow soldiers are not spawn:
That's how it should look like: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LfjAkk7hMY
In linux version you are alone.

Probably training is easier to debug =)

Just received an update to Opposing Force. I can confirm that this is resolved. Note that you must start a new game to get the security guard to appear. Do not use a pre-existing save.

Yep, also confirming that both the security guard and training NPC's are all accounted for now, nice :)

The issue has not been solved for me. I started steam, an update of less than 6MB came through, I restarted steam even, and started a new game on medium difficulty. Still, no guard.

Before I realised this was fixed, I had deleted my Half-Life/gearbox directory and removed Opposing Force from my installed games list, may be worth a try. (I've so far got to the "We are not Alone" chapter without any missing NPC's).

Deleting local data and reinstalling it worked.

I got past the security guard by using noclip cheat in developer mode so I reached the end of the game.
After the final boss is killed, he disappears quickly and there is only a big cloud of colorful smoke left but the game doesn't end.
I could walk around and walk inside the cloud of smoke but there is no way to finish the game.
This was using a save from before the security guard bug was fixed though.

The security guard and soldiers in the training mission spawned fine for me on my first playthrough, but after I validated my download, Steam redownloaded 16 "broken" files for Half Life (which played perfectly fine), and after that the security guard never spawned again, making a second playthrough impossible. Sounds like different versions of the game are being mashed together and, as you would expect, things break.

After that, it kept saying that 2 files are broken and keeps redownloading them, but it never fixes it.

EDIT: After the security guard failed to load, I revalidated the download again, and this time 3 files failed the checksum instead of 2. It redownloaded the corrupt file and now it works again. It seems that the game is clobbering its own files that it should only be reading.

@unbridledExuberance , this should be fixed now.
